The musician's family has been at war over funds from his estate since 2014, when two of Tosh's girls, Aldrina and Niambi MCIntosh, became embroiled in a court battle over $2 million (£1.4 million) in royalty payments, which Niambi was accused of withholding from her siblings.

Now Niambi, who took control of her father's estate in 2009, has been slapped with a civil lawsuit from Tosh's New York-based cousin Pauline Morris, who claims she is owed around $300,000 (£210,830) in yearly fees. The plaintiff cites a 1994 agreement with estate executors, which grants Morris half of Tosh's royalties, reports the New York Post.

Morris, 57, is also accusing 34-year-old Niambi of cutting her out of potentially lucrative negotiations to take an interest in Tuff Gong Records, the company co-founded by late artists Bob Marley and Bunny Wailer.

Niambi has yet to comment on the lawsuit.

Tosh was murdered in Jamaica in 1987.
